The TOC to The Third Bear, my first major story collection since Secret Life in 2004, has been finalized…finally. This includes the 9,000-word story “The Quickening,” which is original to the book, and which I turned in this morning. I’ll be writing some end matter and someone’s doing an introduction. Another new story, “Komodo,” has been dropped from the TOC because it’s still in progress and it might top out at thirty or forty thousand words. Not sure yet.

Shark God Versus Octopus God
